SUBJECT: . NRC REGION 1 INTEGRATED INSPECTION REPORT NOS. 50-317/98-12 f
50-318/98-12 AND NOTICE OF VIOLATION l
Dear Mr. Cruse: !
. This report transmits the findings of the safety inspection conducted by NRC inspectors at the j
- Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant from December 13 to January 30,1999. The enclosed report i
presents the results of that inspection. At the conclusion of the inspection, these findings were -
discussed with Mr. Katz and others of your staff. l
Overall, the NRC has concluded that your facility was operated in a safe manner. Your conduct of ;
activities was generally characterized by safety-conscious operations, sound engineering and l
maintenance, and careful radiological controls. !
However, the NRC has determined that a violation of NRC requirements occurred. The issue was
- the failure of maintenance workers to tighten bolting for the service water heat exchanger !
strainers prior to returning the strainers after performing corrective maintenance. Tightening the !
bolting was required by the m intenance procedure to ensure system integrity. Our inspectors !
identified the loose bolting during a system walkdown a few days after the maintenance.
The NRC has concluded that information regarding the reasons for the violation, the corrective !
action taken and planned to correct the violation and prevent recurrence is already adequately i
addressed in the enclosed report. Therefore, you are not required to respond to this letter unless ' l
the description therein does not accurately reflect your correctiva actions or your position.- In that
case, or if you choose to provide additional information, you should follow the instructions ,
specified in the enclosod notice. !
